Back Reviews

“Dr. Riccio listened to me and addressed my concerns about surgery. The Post-op visit was just as informative.”
– Sandra A.
“Dr. Riccio told me he would scrape the bad disc and that I would be much better. He performed surgery and I was elated how I felt immediately after surgery I have and would recommend Dr. Riccio again.”
– John J.
“For the past year, I couldn't walk 100 feet before sharp sciatica pain down the right leg. Yesterday -13 days after surgery, I walked 3 miles with no pain. So glad I got a second opinion, and thank the stars that it was Dr. Riccio.”
– John M.
“I met with Dr. Riccio for a second opinion on lower back surgery for a ruptured disc and sciatica. I quickly decided that his thoughtful approach and recommendation for my problem was the best and least invasive approach. He was able to free up my L5-S1 nerve by removing the obstructing material in my lower back, and I was out of the hospital the same day. My recovery from sciatic pain and limitations has been excellent after less than two weeks, and I can walk miles per day again. I have already recommended him to a friend, noting that he trained in both neuro and orthopedic surgery, and as a result, has a balanced approach to spinal problems. I feel very fortunate that he was my surgeon for such intricate and demanding surgery.”
